I am not sure about the Sony BDP-S300 Blu-Ray Disc Player: But the Samsung BD-P1000 Blu-Ray Disc Player requires HDMI cable
to give the best resolution (1080p) possible that the TV set is able
to support. Hope this helps.

We have a new TV, old surround sound, old dvd player & want to get Blu-ray player with component video output to work with our surround sound. Is this possible & Which Blu-ray player?


component video output is not going to help you hook it up to a surround system. component video is just that - video. No audio signal is carried on it. You would be better served hooking your blu-ray player to the tv via hdmi cable and then running an optical cable from either your blu-ray player or your tv to the surround system (assuming your surround system has an optical input).

What is 1080i and 1080p what cable and HDMI version do I need


So you've got your new Flat Panel Plasma TV and Blu Ray DVD player what cable should you use, am I really 1080p HD Ready ?

So here it is in laymans terms

HDMI
stands for High-Definition Multimedia Interface. It's a digital interface to get the best, uncompressed digital picture possible.There are currently five versions that are setup as improvement on the last since its introduction in 2003

The first high defintion TV's were classed as HD Ready only the resolutions were set at 1280x720= 921,600 just under a MegaPixel per frame and were called 720p and are capable of viewing only 1080i signals with the correct cable the latest version is called HD Ready 1080p the HDMI standard for this is HDMI 1.3 which means that unless you have a TV that is rated for HDMI 1.3 your 1080p Blu Ray player wont work in full 1080p there will be no picture and the players HDMI output will have to be reduced to 1080i this can be done in the Blu Ray Players settings so you can still watch the video on your older HD Ready television

1080i vs 1080p - Basically both formats have the same number of Pixels 1920 across the top and 1080 across the side this gives a total number of pixels (1920x1080=2,073,600) aka 2 MegaPixels per frame assuming that the aspect ratio is 16:9 this is the same as a basic digital camera or phone jpeg.

You might also see written like this 1080p24 means that it originated from a progressive scanned 24 frames source and has become an established production standard Cimena and for your Blu Ray player will also have this setting if you require it.

When Compared to standard DVD with and aspect ratio of 4:3 which has 720x576=414,720 this is an increase of 500% in the resolution alone over the now humbled DVD Video format with interlaced video

The difference between the two is that one is interlaced (like normal DVD-Video) and the other is progressive OR non-interlaced scan which means that 1080p requires way more transfer speed than that of the 1080i format.

So the main disadvantage of progressive scan is that it requires higher bandwidth than interlaced video that has the same frame size and vertical refresh rate this is why DVD-Videos incorporate the interaced video due to the lack of a digital inteface like HDMI 1.3 rated cable is required to transfer this higher speed of transmission in contrast the 1080i signal requires a much slower speed and HDMI 1.2 rated cable might work.

As far as interconnects go you can still connect your full 1080p Blu Ray Player to your 1080i Plasma TV using the three cable interconnect that comes with the players but for the best possible connection you need to use a HDMI cable with gold plated connecitons. Prices range from £15 right upto £60 and beyond if you go with Monster Cables however the £15 version if it says rated for Blu Ray it will work just fine so save yourself £40.


HD Ready
----------------

HDMI 1.0 - combines a digital video signal (standard or HD) with a two-channel audio signal over a single cable used with the HD Ready
HDMI 1.1 - This version adds the ability to transfer not only video and two-channel audio over a single cable, but also added the ability to transfer Dolby Digital, DTS, and DVD-Audio surround signals, as well up to 7.1 channels of PCM audio.
HDMI 1.2 - This version adds the ability to transfer Super Audio CD signals in digital form from a player to a receiver most Home Theatre Systems require at least this type of cable for full capabilty however you can use a v1.3a cable works just as well

HD Ready 1080p
--------------------------

HDMI 1.3 and HDMI 1.3a These versions include improvements in both audio and video capability. With the advent of Blu-ray Disc it adds the ability to transfer the digital bitstreams for the new high resolution audio formats in addition to the standard 24-bit color depth we are used to, HDMI 1.3a has the ability to transfer color depths up to 48-bits, and can accommodate resolutions much higher than the 1080p resolution standard that is in use today on all TVs that are HD Ready 1080p

HDMI 1.4 and HDMI 1.4a HDMI version 1.4 adds practical enhancements for HDMI connectivity. If home theater components, such as HDTVs, Blu-ray Disc players, and Home Theater Receiver, the next step in HDMI of the future is covered by the v1.4a cables wrt to speed.

How do I change my tv to 1080p..its on 480I currently


You can't change the resolution on the television itself. You change the resolution on whatever you have connected to the television. Let's say it's a cable box or a blu ray player you've got connected to the television. First off you have to connect it to the television with a component (green, blue, red, white, red) cable or an hdmi cable. Then you make sure it is only connected to the television with either a component cable or an hdmi cable. This may sound ridiculous but there are some people that have their cable boxes and blu ray players connected to their televisions three different ways ( an hdmi cable, a composite cable, and a component cable) when they only need to have it connected one way.
Select the proper input on the television. Set the cable box or blu ray player's resolution to 1080i or 1080p (in the case of the blu ray player if it the tv will allow it).

If you have sat or cable box be sure they are HD capable and are connected to the HDMI or Component input on the TV . Only HD channels will be in 1080i. No one broadcasts in 1080p. Only Blue Ray DVD players of Game machines are 1080p.

When connecting hdmi out from my panasonic blue-ray player to the dvd input in my yamaha rx-v365 there is not audio or video,why?


There are several video and audio inputs named DVD. For video you have HDMI, component and composite. For audio you have standard analog stereo and digital coaxial spdif input.
You need to configure the receiver to use the correct inputs - that means HDMI and coax. Also you need to connect the BD player via coax spdif cable to the receiver, because rx-v365 doesn't support audio via HDMI. If BD player has only optical output, use DTV/CABL HDMI input and DTv/CABL Optical input on the receiver.

A/V Signal Outout through Onkyo TX-SR705


Are you trying to record cable programming with your DVD recorder? If so, you might want to try using component cable as HDMI does have a copy protection circuit that might be preventing your recorder from receiving the image. Just try to connect the cable box component (RED/GREEN/BLUE) cable to your DVD recorder. If that doesn't work, then try to change everything over to component cables. HDMI is a great cable to use but it the only required to display 1080p images and the only current source that uses 1080p is a bluray player. Everything else, such as your cable box and DVD recorder is 1080i and component cables are perfect for it.

Component Cable


Are you just using the yellow cable at this point, because the quality would in fact be awful? Using the green, red & blue cables (component cables) would not improve quality much, seeing as the yellow video cable has a resolution of 480i and component cables are set at 480p. Your TV (if it is in fact high definition) would either run at 720p or 1080p depending on what the manual says and what the native resolution is. I would say try and buy and upconvert DVD player and make sure to get an HDMI cable to go from the DVD player to the HDTV (some DVD players come with this cable, but you'll have to look around for them, otherwise look on buy.com or something for some cheap ones). HDMI connection and the upconvert DVD player will improve picture quality significantly.

Ws-65807 65" mitsubishi rear projection tv


For this unit and the addition of the secuity features of Blu-Ray, the 1080i you set can handle is through the component input from a DVD player or an XBOX. In the configuration menu of the PS3, change the resolution to 1080i and see if your set will reset to it. The 1080i on the Blu-Ray is only possible on the HDMI cable as far as I could find, again due to the security restriction. The Mitsu is not going to run it in 720p due to the PS3 is running component and cannot control sync to this set.
